    On the change to pitch clocks:

    “Still no data to support pitch timer causing more injuries: IL placements for pitchers from spring report date to Day 124 of season down from 379 in '22 to 360. Placements since 1st day of spring games down from 365 to 349. Regular season placements down from 285 to 239.” - Anthony Castrovince

    Looks like Eppler is the fall guy for a sneaky little maneuver that has been fairly common in MLB. A maneuver that some fans even recommend being used at times. Maybe he can use a variant of the excuse ; " But officer, they were all speeding, why pick on me?" That always works.
    Old school is good school.

    So do this mean Trout and Rendon have been healthy all along?

    Hey, Eppler ran the Angels for a while. Who cares about injured Mets?

    Probably not Cohen, but you do wonder who brought this to the attention of the powers that be.

    Must have been pretty egregious, but to do it for a team that was out of contention? Maybe it was messing with someone's contract incentives?
